How is your New Year going? We are recovering from a busy December.
OMG Becky turned 18 years old. I’m still trying to come to terms with that one.
We celebrated with a family birthday dinner party a few days after her actual birthday.
Birthday spankings on her birthday.
Dinner with friends the night before.
We went to see Santa at our traditional location.
Dinner with friends on the Country Club Plaza.
We got there a bit early and the place was basically empty. Then within 15 minutes of taking this photo, the entire restaurant was packed!
It was a Spanish restaurant with amazing tapas and sangria. I can’t wait to go back!
Christmas Eve was a bit different for me this year. I found out that morning I have bronchitis. I was told to stay away from other people as much as possible. And given a mask to wear. That meant I skipped Christmas Eve dinner and church with my family. I did wear my mask and go over for the gift giving and dessert portion of the evening. I didn’t want to miss everything!

There were a few kiddos missing this year. 😦
Christmas morning, my parents came over for breakfast and to watch my girls open their presents. Then my girls went to their dad’s to celebrate with him for a few days. I usually spend Christmas afternoon at my parents’ house, but stayed home again to keep my germs away.
Our New Year’s Eve was also a quiet one at home. OMG Becky was involved in a car wreck the night before. (It wasn’t her fault and she is recovering. More on that later.) We watched a movie and ordered take-out. We watched the NYC ball drop at 11:00 PM our time and called it a night, but not before we heard our neighbors shooting off fireworks at that time. Apparently, they were on East Coast time, too!
How did you celebrate New Year’s Eve?
